Like the one you've been fighting here to defend the US's covert intervention in Afghanistan for example ? :-)

I would put it on a par with the Soviet Union's support for Cuba in seeking to avert US invasion and takeover there.  Neither Cuba nor Afghanistan should be seen exclusively through a cold war prism and it would have been preferable if the then superpowers had left Cuba and Afghanistan to sort out their political futures internally without superpower intervention.
